Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is reviving his interest in Porto star James Rodriguez.A Bola says Rodriguez's stunning form for Porto and Colombia this season has convinced Ferguson to move for the youngster, who is now emerging as United's No1 target for 2013

With no sign of a breakthrough between United and Nani over new contract talks, Rodriguez could arrive as a direct replacement for the Portuguese.

Ferguson made enquiries after Rodriguez last summer, but never formalised his interest after being referred to the youngster's €45 million buyout clause.
